Servings 4 crepes


  • 1 cup spinach leaves
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 no egg
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 tsp garlic paste
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • salt to taste


  • Blanch the spinach leaves in hot water for half a minute and then take it out.
  • Drain the water and place the spinach leaves in ice-water.
  • Now squeeze all the water and put the leaves in a blender.
  • Add 1 egg, baking powder, onion, garlic paste and 1 tsp olive oil in the blender.
  • Add a little bit of water and blend into a puree. Take the puree out in a mixing bowl.
  • Add the flour and then make a batter using enough water. The batter should be thick, like a pancake batter.
  • Take a frying pan and brush it with olive oil. When the pan is hot, pour a ladle full of batter on the pan and swirl around the pan.
  • Spread the batter into the thickness that you want. It won't rise like a pancake since the baking powder is very little.
  • Then lower the heat and cook for a little more than half a minute.
  • When you see bubbles forming, flip the crepe and cook the other side for half a minute.
  • When it’s fully cooked, slide the crepe onto a plate.
  • Repeat the process until you finish the batter. You don’t need to add any more oil on the frying pan after the first time.
  • Serve the crepes as it is or with a sauce of your choice. You can serve it with some chicken cutlets, salad and feta cheese dressing on the side.
